           A LOVER’S EYES

The biting blue of ice bergs
     Breaking knives into the sea--
The thousand shades of green
     adrift in the shadows of lashes--
Brown, stark as winter bark
Nudged beside the snow--
Ship in silhouette
     Returning from the wars.
Each lover’s eye a Splendor.

Eyes flicker  hot to cold
   Faster than a chemist's burner.
Provocative by timelessness,
   Eyes can haunt forever with
 the memory they enslave--

Fortune, infamous for cruelty,
    Is kind in this respect--

Time cannot diminish
The magnificence

Victoria Anderson-Throop
(a rewrite of an old poem)
